Supported by an educational grant from Novo Nordisk
A new generation of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs), including an oral formulation, may reshape the care of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Two key members of the American Diabetes Association (ADA)/European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) guidelines panel, Professor Melanie Davies and Professor Chantel Mathieu, provide updates on the 2018 ADA/EASD treatment guidelines, and present recent clinical trials data—including studies presented at the 2019 annual meeting of the ADA—on long-acting GLP-1 RAs that may change clinical practice. The discussion focuses on comparative data of the spectrum of GLP-1 RAs with regard to efficacy, safety, weight-loss, and impact on patients with and without established cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Primary care (family medicine/internal medicine) MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs, and other providers who care for patients with diabetes.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
Summarize the ADA/EASD consensus update and its practical impact on clinical decision-making
Engage in a therapeutic alliance with patients applying the principles of shared decision-making in a collaborative model of diabetes care
Define an appropriate role for GLP-1 RAs in the multidimensional care of the patient with T2DM
